the potential of the browns if they draft sammy watkins


Recommended Posts

the browns already have gordon cameron and now tate. hoyer is more then good enough to be their qb and if not, they can take a AJ or jimmy G or even bridgewater if he falls that far as most are predicting at 26. this could easily be a top 10 offense and they also have two all-pros on their o-line. the browns could be the darkhorse of the AFC

I'm not so sure since they lost Ray Horton as DC and their biggest issue last year was their secondary outside Joe Haden on D, and their running game on O (I know they did sign donte whitner for their D). Josh Gordon will still see 1-on-1s if they force teams to honor their running game, so its more important for them to shore up their O-line and running game outside the QB position more and they should be able to get quality wideouts in round 2 and 3 if they want.

 

The running game is important in a division where everyone plays outdoors (that is 8 games right there) and controlling tempo with first downs allows their D to have fresher legs. Sammy Watkins is not going to really help that, IMO.

 

OL or QB will help the Browns the most in round 1, IMO. RB and WR next. I can see them drafting Jeremy Hill, RB, LSU in round 2 and will have lots to choose from on the WR front from round 2 onwards.

They'll have a better shot at winning their division than they've had in recent history with some top notch receivers and O-lineman on the roster. But I wouldn't consider them the favorite, they still have issues especially on defense.

Hoyer? No. It wont matter until they get a better qb. They get a top 15 qb and then we'll talk.

 

hoyer was playing great before he got hurt

They already have receiving talent....I don't see the need to spend a high pick on a #2 WR when they can easily get that in rounds 2-4.

 

they dont have a number 2 wr though

Well, they certainly have the picks to make some noise, after performing the ole' bait-n-switch trade on us.

 

who at 26 would have been a better pick then richardson

Literally anybody. 

 

you dont know that. Id like to see you deal with everything t-rich had to deal with and excel. 9 man boxes, a whole new offense, zero o-line help. then comes the well brown ran with the same line garbage, everyone things brown ran for 1000 yards or something. you think defensives are more interested in stopping luck or brown? quit letting one season cloud your judgement. lynch had the same problems and now look at him

Then why did boom herron/tashard choice/brown and bradshaw have similiar numbers behind our o-line and T-RICH stunk it up?  He was more than a full yard per carry off from those guys.

Yeah I do.

9 man boxes? Is this a joke? 

 

 

. then comes the well brown ran with the same line garbage, everyone things brown ran for 1000 yards or something.

 

1000 yards is volume stats and means nothing to me. His YPC wasn't just respectable, it was actually good. One of the highest in the NFL. TRich's was nowhere near that. It was on the opposite level of the spectrum.

This works both ways. Do you think defenses were more interested in stopping Luck or Richardson?

go look at the type then. defenders were hitting him as soon as he got the ball. brown, bradshaw, and choice were not dealing with that.

Why would you spend a top 5 pick on a WR when you have Josh Gordon? Just pick one up in the later rds.

 

falcons did it with julio jones when they already had roddy white

Because TRich hits the line like his shoes are filled with cement.

Which was a stupid thing to do considering all the holes they have on that team.

 

jones is one of the top wrs in the game

They are fun to watch I will give them that, but their offensive and defensive lines stink.....good luck winning with that formula.

Yes, defenses only played well when TRich got the ball. You are just another poster with 1001 excuses for Trent Richardson.

defensives focused on trent because of his rep. brown was a nobody so defensives didnt tee off on him. also trent came in after thomas got hurt so thats one key lineman that trent never got to run behind

Can I blame him for not getting any yards after contact? 

 

trent fights hard just to get two yards. the holes were never there

His rep? Lol....his rep of being a below average running back? Look, I said on this board that the Browns were fools when they drafted him that high and Grigson was an even bigger fool for that trade and Richardson has done absolutely nothing to make me change my mind. But this subject has been beat to death, so we might as well agree to disagree.

We must just admit...we were wrong about him and it probably cost us jimmie ward. I think T-RICH is on a short leash this year and if he continues struggling, he gets yanked for good (i would take a 5th rounder for him) within the first 4 games.

I'm struggling to see what seperates Sammy Watkins from Deandre Hopkins? Besides a little speed difference I fell like they are about even but Hopkins runs better routes to me when he was at Clemson. Both have great hands.

I don't see how Watkins is a top 5 prospect and Hopkins was rated at the bottom of the 1st.

The skins drafted morris (rams stacy) in the 6th, i do believe, so talent can be easily had in later rounds of the draft, especially in the RB position. So...yes, a 5th is good for can't get right richardson.

FINGERS CROSSED MY FRIEND. His success is our success. I just don't want to run our year into the ground with a subpar back, that grig's valued too highly. If it ain't working by week 4, then pull the plug.

He only played two full games. No one is ready to call him the guy yet, much less the QB of a top 10 offense. Thats especially true for a guy thats been q career backup. Couldnt even break the starting linup at a team that went through 4 QBs in one year.

Sammy Watkins, in terms of athletic ability, is not in the same zip code as Julio Jones, IMO.

 

Plus, like I said, in a WR deep draft, if I had to choose a WR, I'd wait at least till the second of my 2 first round picks.

 

OL, DL or QB will help the Browns more with pick No.4 than any other position, IMO.

    • A Z can line up everywhere, and is typically your motion WR. I'd like to see him (Patmon) in motion with some build up speed with his size doing a 9 route. Would be a great mismatch opportunity and/or likely take up a double.    But in general, tired of seeing our Z (Hilton) on the outside, typically the sideline, trying to do a back shoulder or quick come back. I'd simply prefer either someone quicker with better run-separation (like Campbell) or someone bigger that would be more of a mismatch. I think Hilton's last-cut separation and route running would be best used in the slot. 
    • Yeah sort of like a Flanker, next to the TE. That would be interesting, he has the talent, size, and speed to do so but his route running is questionable like you basically said. I do think he makes the 53 so we will see.
    • Something that would be interesting to me is seeing Patmon work at Z if his route running and ball tracking is up to snuff. I think he's fast enough, just not sure he'd be good on cuts. I'd love to see a 9 or backshoulder though.
    • Reggie Wayne used to workout in Miami during the offseason and the league was ok with it and so was Irsay. I don't see the big deal with working out away from the teams facility, several players do it.
    • This is such a cluster.   The NFLPA is really looking out for the veteran players that they feel are established and do not need to go to voluntary things and that they want to protect from excessive team activities etc.   They are 100% not looking out for young or unestablished players trying to crack a roster, keep a job or make a name for themselves.   Also, this stuff is right in contracts. Literally all the players, agents, NFLPA reps know this or should know this. They even have acknowledged that players w $ tied to workout bonuses would likely attend because they are not trying to mess with players' money and livelihood. And yet they did just that by trying to have them work out away from team facilities.   This would totally make sense last year w COVID running crazy. Thinking facilities might not be safe health-wise around a lot of ppl. But this year it was a power grab to try to limit off-season and pre-season workouts and activities.   I always loved the Peyton Manning quote about Marvin Harrison saying "They pay you to practice, the games you play for free. "   At the end of the day this is one of those things where i truly want to feel bad for the players but i have a hard time feeling bad for them. they are just getting terrible guidance and listening to it. hopefully players make wise decisions since this is their livelihood at the end of the day.   I may be in the minority but if it were me id be at the team facility covering my butt and my check lol
